Hi Dave, 
It depends on several variables, the most important one: what type of water heater you’re talking about… I’m assuming it’s a water heater since you posted it in WH Venting category.
Natural draft – very hot initially, right after the burner ignites. If you have a proper draft it should cool down considerably in a minute or so but still hot. If there is a double wall / B-vent starting at the draft hood, its outer wall shouldn’t be hot at all.
Power vented (PVC pipe) – warm
Tankless – depends on exhaust system and material used

I'm selling my checkthishouse.com domain and this website.

I created it in 2001 for my home inspection business so it's a well established property with around 150 home improvement related posts. It also comes with a Youtube channel and a Q&A forum.

Website can be easily adopted for any home inspection / home improvement related business. Makes money on daily basis without even being touched, although it could make much more, I just don't have time to maintain it.

If you're an Illinois based home inspector I'll add http://homeinspectorillinois.com domain to this deal.
